I will be intermittently going over to SA to help my elderly mother so please contact me to arrange a mutually convenient period of stay. I won't be going over to SA till the end of the year.

The block of land is in a semi-rural zone adjacent to Maroondah dam catchment and Yarra Ranges National Park. Only 5km east of the township of Healesville in the Yarra Valley which is a wine and grape region.
Healesville is a tourist town surrounded by mountains. The Healesville Sanctuary is about 7km away with many Australian native animals.

Home is owner built earth wall home that has solar hot water (wood heating in winter)and grid connected PV. It is situated in a small semi-rural subdivision on a no through road.
The property has many fruit trees and large organic vegetable patch and is self sufficient in firewood.

As I am single and as I get older I need help in the home (cleaning/cooking leaves me free to do other things) and in the garden, as well as unfinished projects on/around the house. I am a vegetarian but eat fish sometimes. I prefer non-smokers to stay.

I can tell you about sustainable living and house design, walks and cycling in Victoria and a little about biochar.

The mobile reception is not good in some places around town, but I have booster antenna on the house. I have WiFi from my ADSL2+ connection.
